Cairo - Since December, nineteen counterfeit ten, twenty and fifty dollar bills have shown up at businesses in Cairo. Fifteen have appeared within the past week alone. Police think the fake bills are coming from drug deals.
Inv. Johnny Myers with Cairo Police says, "One it's determined that those bills are counterfeit, well, naturally those bills are passed onto someone else." If you are passed a counterfeit bill, police say don't give it back, keep it and call them.
